As summer winds down to an end, it’s time to get in those last minute summer cookouts and family meals before the hustle and bustle of school begins! Did you know that research shows that family meals can greatly benefit the health and well-being of our children? I think that’s a pretty important to reason to host a family cookout! If you agree, then you’ll want to check out this recipe for Guacamole Deviled Eggs, thanks to Eggland’s Best and the American Heart Association!
Eggland’s Best is the #1 branded egg in the United States and is an excellent source of vitamins D, B12, E, B5 and riboflavin! Their eggs have six times more vitamin D, more than double the Omega-3s, 10 times more vitamin E and 25% less saturated fat than ordinary eggs! Plus independent testing has also confirmed that Eggland’s Best eggs stay fresher longer than ordinary eggs. This is exactly why I always reach for Eggland’s Best at the grocery store.
Together, Eggland’s Best and the American Heart Association have teamed up to help educate families on the importance of spending time together and eating healthy and nutritious meals. Since deviled eggs are always such a crowd-pleasing start to a meal or for a party, you can’t go wrong with this tasty twist on the summer classic!
9 Eggland’s Best Eggs (large)
1 medium avocado, pitted and halved
2 tablespoons fat-free sour cream
1 1/2 teaspoons lime juice
1/3 cup seeded finely chopped Roma Tomato
1/4 cup scallions, chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon jalapeno, chopped
cilantro to garnish
Fill a large pot with water, add all the eggs, and bring mixture to a boil over high heat. As soon as the water begins to boil, cover with a lid, remove the pot from the heat, and let eggs sit for 10 minutes. Than drain water and transfer eggs to a bowl of cold water to cool.
When the eggs are cool enough to handle, remove the shells, and slice each egg in half lengthwise. Remove the yolks, adding just 2 whole egg yolks into a medium bowl and discarding the remaining 7 egg yolks. Place the egg white halves onto a platter.
Slice the avocado in half and remove the pit. Use a spoon to scoop the avocado’s flesh into a bowl. Use a fork to mash the egg yolks and the avocado together. Stir in the sour cream and lime juice.
Remove the seeds from the tomatoes with a spoon and discard; finely chop the tomato, along with finely chopping the scallions. Add both to the mashed avocado, along with salt, pepper, and optional jalapeno. Stir together to combine.
Spoon the guacamole into each egg white half, dividing the mixture between all 18. Garnish with a sprinkle of dried or fresh chopped cilantro, if desired.
Now your Guacamole Deviled Eggs are ready to serve! Trust me, your family will be all smiles when you bring this platter out for them to enjoy.
You can’t go wrong with a dish that is not only healthy, but so tasty, that the whole family will devour within minutes! These will definitely be a hit at any party.
